From this study (23 hours ago):
Upon reduction of jakafi dose due to low platelet count from 20 mg to 5 mg every 12 hours patient experienced extreme pain experienced low blood pressure and rapid heartbeat and with admission to emergency was treated for shock and then diagnosed with toxic shock syndrome and treated for that. The blood and urine tests however showed ant reason for infection after 5 days. He died 40 hours after reaching the hospital. Cytokine overreaction is my belief that brought on a septic shock like syndrome.
Dave M. on Oct, 12, 2014:
Maybe patient should not have been on 20mg. Something else likely going on here with sudden reduction from 20mg to 5mg. Sudden reduction due to sudden drop in platelets. Slower dose reduction with transfusion if required would be in order.
